  • Posted in thread: 2 step starter questions on 09-30-2016 at 04:59 AM
    If I understand what you are saying I think you can, I've done a 2 step starter in this
    fashion. The online calculator called for something like a .8 L starter and then a stepped
    starter of 1.5 L or s...

    Yes, the specific gravity of lactic acid is 1.17, I think the lactobacillus ate more than 2 or
    3 points. I think if you had a pH meter to read final pH and then you could calculate how much
    lactic aci...

    Very glad to hear that you didn't have any issues with run-off. What was your rye percentage?
    We had 50% rye and it took a little more than an hour with the valve wide open, normally we

    If you use a single packet of liquid yeast you need a 3.1 L starter at a pitching rate of 1M
    cells/mL/degree Plato; with 2 packets you need a 2.5L starter, both are with a stir plate. And
    that is assu...

    I just ran some numbers in brewer's friend yeast calculator with high gravity selected, it

    yeast. As long as ...

    i did mine with a Berlin water profile. Mine turned out fantastic. Be sure to use plenty of
    rice hulls I used a half pound and the run-off was very slow. A whole pound would have been a

    I use copper fittings for my pickup tube. Everything is soldered, using lead free solder,
    except for the elbow to 1/2" male threaded piece. Don't worry about teflon I don't use any and
    I get a full dr...

    Whiskey goes in the brewer. Put StarSan solution in the airlock.

    Unless you want to remove all the flavor from the water I wouldn't worry about running it
    through the RO system. The water is going to be boiled for an hour it will be safe to drink. I
    might run it th...
